While you are certainly entitled to your opinion, this law is nothing more than knee-jerk legislation. It serves no real purpose.
If the OP is accurate, setting such an arbitrary age (16) is just stupid. Go to any third world country and you will find 16 yr. olds quite capable of handling full auto firearms. Ask anyone who has been in close combat.
